BACKGROUND Zataria multiflora Boiss. is a traditional and popular spice in Iran. The effects of 3 ecotypes (ECTPs) of Z. multiflora essential oils (EOs) against most common causes of food-borne and nosocomial infections were evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS The antimicrobial activities of the EOs were examined by broth microdilution method as recommended(More)
CONTEXT Candida species are opportunistic yeasts that cause infections ranging from simple dermatosis to potentially life-threatening fungemia. The emergence of resistance to antifungal drugs has been increased in the past two decades. AIM the present study we determined to find out the susceptibility profiles of clinical isolates of Candida species(More)
This paper presents an assisted recall system, Rewind, that employs automatic image capture on mobile phones and filtering of images for end-user viewing. The usability of image-based assisted recall systems is limited by the large number of images through which the user must navigate. Rewind is a scalable system of everyday mobile phones and supporting web(More)
BACKGROUND Essential Oils (EOs) possess antibacterial properties and represent a natural source to treat infections and prevent food spoilage. Their chemical composition might be affected by the environmental condition and the developmental growth stages of the plant. OBJECTIVES The current study aimed to determine the variations in chemical compositions(More)
Nepeta cataria L. is traditionally consumed as a food additive. The effects of three different harvest stages of N. cataria essential oils (EOs) against most common causes of food-borne infections were evaluated by broth microdilution method as recommended by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI). The chemical composition of the EOs from N.(More)
Currently, researchers turn to natural processes such as using biological microorganisms in order to develop reliable and ecofriendly methods for the synthesis of metallic nanoparticles. In this study, we have investigated extracellular biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles using four Aspergillus species including A. fumigatus, A. clavatus, A. niger, and A.(More)
INTRODUCTION There are different methods of urethroplasty in hypospadias. The present study aimed to compare the repair of the urethral plate by single vs. double layer suturing. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifteen male rabbits were assigned to the control, single layer, and double layer urethral plate suturing groups (n = 5). Experimental hypospadias was(More)
BACKGROUND Anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) abuse by the athletes has dramatically increased during the recent decades. These substances might increase the skin lipids and enhance the cutaneous microbial proliferation. OBJECTIVES The current study aimed to investigate the potential side effects of AAS on the bacterial microflora colonization of the(More)
The present study aims to trace the long term effects of different types of feedback-direct, indirect, and content-on EFL learners' writing accuracy (the major concern of SLA researchers) and overall writing quality (the primary aim of L2 writing researchers). Data was gathered from three groups of Iranian EFL learners (N=44) randomly assigned to an(More)
